Home Minister Amit Shah will go to Kolkata on October 16 to inaugurate Durga Puja in central Kolkata.
He will inaugurate the Puja of Santosh Mitra Square at Lebutala Park in central Kolkata, whose principal organiser is BJP councilor in Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) Sajal Ghosh.
The theme of this specific neighborhood Puja this 12 months is Ram Mandir in Ayodhya. “The Prime Minister Narandra Modi will be inaugurating the Ram Mandir at Ayodhya in January next year. But before that Home Minister will be inaugurating another Ram Mandir in Kolkata, ” Ghosh instructed media individuals.
Ghosh additionally confirmed that the one programme that Shah can have in Kolkata on Monday might be to inaugurate the Puja. “As per the schedule fixed so far, he will be in the city for a couple of hours. He will come to the city, inaugurate the Puja and go back to New Delhi, ” Ghosh mentioned.
Santosh Mitra Square, this 12 months too, has maintained its custom of not accepting the donation and different monetary advantages provided by the state authorities to the neighborhood Durga Puja committees yearly.
“We had not been accepting donations for the last two years. Pujas have been organised with lots of pomp and grandeur even before. So it will happen this year as well. But we do not want to be party to waste money of the state exchequer and that too at a time when the state government is unable to meet essential expenditure for development or go for recruitment for the vacant posts, ” Ghosh mentioned.
